The Future of Iraq is in Excellent Hands

If you haven't been reading Abby, you've been missing out.


  1. Thank you! Makes me glad nobody snapped a picture of me giving a kid a noogie... :)

  2. Paules says,

    "What we do in life echoes in eternity." Even if said by a fictional character, the sentiment strikes me as right. I have the very lowest opinion of those who impugned our fine men and women in uniform during the war. Or as Gandhi put it: "The truth is still the truth even if only one man know it." Of course, our soldiers and their families know the truth even as lesser men attempt to deny the laurels of victory to the valiant. To our soldiers, airmen, sailors and marines, I say hold your heads high. And if ten-thousand years from now your sacrifices and victories should be lost to the the ebb and flow of history, then let the stars bear witness to your efforts till the end of time. Take satisfaction now that your deeds are recorded in the heavens. As they should be. As they are.

  3. Thank you, Abby!
    Ummmmm... you've got a cigarette in one hand and a packing 8yo in the other. You can't get more un-PC than that. Noogies would be a step up.

    May God bless you and keep you safe, dear lady.

    Thank you!


We reserve the right to delete comments, but the failure to delete any particular comment should not be interpreted as an endorsement thereof.

In general, we expect comments to be relevant to the story, or to a prior comment that is relevant; and we expect some minimal level of civility. Defining that line is inherently subjective, so try to stay clear of insulting remarks. If you respond to a comment that is later deleted, we may take your response with it. Deleting your comment isn't a personal knock on you, so don't take it as such.

We allow a variety of ways for commenters to identify themselves; those who choose not to do so should take extra care. Absent any prior context in which they may be understood, ironic comments may be misinterpreted. Once you've earned a reputation for contributing to a conversation, we are likely to be more tolerant in those gray areas, as we'll understand where you're coming from.
